Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

There is a lot of walking involved in this tour,mostly uphill,but well worth the effort. The walled city of Avila,Sergovia and the Alcazar were lovely. Fantastic scenery,the countryside and snowcapped mountains were beautiful.Take a warm coat and scarf no matter what time of year you go.It is also quite a long day,so maybe take water bottles also. Our guide Arthur,was good. We had plenty of time on our own in Sergovia to explore and take photos. The wall is certainly impressive.Dont miss this tour.

Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I was very dissapointed in the amount of time we were forced to waste in Tangier while having to listen to hardsell from carpet makers and other local merchants.(SpiceShop) Obviously pre-arranged by the tour companies. I am paying for a tour,I am NOT willing to waste my day just to line the locals pockets.I suggest if you have no wish to purchase either of these items then just duck off on your own to try and take pictures if possible. As for the Snake charmers !! Well,there is only one,that I could see and you had to be quick to see him.Lunch was provided in a casbah which was quite interesting and adequate even if you werent quite sure what you were eating.There are lots and lots of street merchants trying to sell you anything from teapots to tissues,hang onto your bags and wallets. They will almost trip you up to get money out of you,but if you do want a souvenir I guess you have to at least buy a magnet off one as you will have very little,if any free time on your own. We also had to leave "early" as the ferry back was overbooked. The one saving grace was that our guides were indeed knowledgeable. Unfortunately this is a highly overrated tour.

Granada - The Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens

Costa del Sol, Spain

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Straight out of my travel diary......A local guide took us on a 4 mile hike through a series of very boring palaces and gardens with no flowers/waterfalls ;-( nothing like it sounded on Viator. The Alhambra palace is the most visited monument in Spain, 7500 people per day.I wonder how many are dissapointed.! Many on our tour were NOT impressed. In fact I heard one man from the U.S. say can you just tell us how to get out of here.! Again,the guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the Palace,for the life of me I cant see why. It was a very long,boring day.

My Review

This was a really lovely trip.Great scenery,excellant guides. Saint Michals cave is fasinating and the Monkeys are really cheeky,jumping into the bus window or onto a car roof,hang onto yours sunnies n cameras or they will be off with them. Once again a long drive,but well worth it.

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There was plenty to see on this full day tour,especially the beautiful mosiacs and tiles.Arabic,Spanish and Italian craftmanship like we had never seen before. Thank goodnessyou have time on your own to take photos because quite frankly I think our local guide LOLA wished she was elsewhere. Jose,who was our quide at the end of the day was the complete opposite.A real gem. Even after the tour was over and he had knocked off for the day,he took us to one of his special little places and even paid the admittance fee himself. He was real good value,so was our bus driver Mario.In all,plenty to see and enjoy. A good day.

Roman Sites Small Group Day Trip from Avignon

Avignon, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I loved this tour.Our guide Virginia was the sweetest lass and so very very well informed as she is also a local girl.She has a divine accent as well.You are left pretty much to do your own thing at each location,not guided as such,but that suited us as we like to take lots of photos.You should be failrly active as there are a lot of steps involved and a few long and sometimes steep walks.Good value for money.Not for the elderly.

Excellent value,good comentary.We made the most of this two day package and saw so much that woudnt have been possible otherwise especially if you only have a few days in Dubai.Which really isnt enough.We love the place and will go back for a longer visit next time.Downstairs in the bus is the best option as it can get extremely windy and hot up the top.
